How do I delete "hp-notebook" appended to home page URL

I bought a new HP Pavilion dm4 and whenever I go to my homepage www.msn.com, it appends "hp-notebook.us" so the URL reads "hp-notebook.us.msn.com".  On the tab for that window it says "MSN.com by HP Notebook".  What setting can I change so the HP Notebook stuff doesn't appear?

Try to manually correct the home page by clicking tools on the ie browser, click internet options from the drop down list, change the url under home page to www.msn.com. apply then ok. Restart ie and check from there.

Re: How do I delete "hp-notebook" appended to home page URL

I too have the same issie.  I have reset the homepage several times in the options and have even used Iobit system care to remove it. It's still there. How do I get HP from hijacking my browser? I truly resent this.
